From attending parties during the Covid-19 lockdown to taking payment for lobbying, some MPs seem to think the rules they set for others should not apply to them. Their procedures are complex, they are far from representative of the UK population, and many appear detached from the lives led by their constituents.

So what can be done to reform the way the House of Commons works? How can MPs make their institution worthy of public trust? And what can parliamentarians do to restore their flagging reputation?

To mark the publication of her new book: Held in Contempt: What’s wrong with the House of Commons? the IfG’s deputy director, Hannah White will be joined in conversation by an expert panel. The event will be chaired by IfG senior fellow, Dr Catherine Haddon.
